Such temptations are dangerous and harmful. They are, in the words of the great Pope Paul VI, absurd dichotomies.”- Pope Francis. Is what Pope Francis saying true? Does having a personal relationship with Jesus dangerous? Let’s read from the Book of Revelation, what happens if you create a personal relationship with Jesus. Revelation 3:20 – Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Does that sound like a dangerous personal relationship to you?
How dangerous is this relationship with Jesus? Well when you Abide in Jesus and his words what you ask him in prayer he will deliver. “IF YOU ABIDE IN ME, AND MY WORDS ABIDE IN YOU, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.” (John 15:7). Please read your Bible. Find within the pages of the good book what God wants of you and not man. There is nothing dangerous about creating a relationship with Jesus. On the contrary he asks you to come to him so that he can ABIDE IN YOU. Don’t be left out by man’s error, but ABIDE in the one that was nailed at the cross for you.
